I have a branch office that I am setting up with one 2003 DC.  I have created a new site under "site and services" and created the new subnet also.  However, when I try to move the branch office DC from the original site to the new one I get a "access is denied" error.  I am logged in as domain admin.  Any ideas what's going on here?

thanks

On Active Directory Sites and services go to security tab and add the admin user id with full control and check.

If  windows2008 DC exist in the network then on 2008 DC in ADSS on the Server object in ntds go to properties and remove  the check mark of Protect Objects from accidential deletion this might be preventing.Sample eg id given in below link.

If above does not work then try with other admininstaror id to perform the same.If other admin account is not present create new userid and add the id to domain admin group and administartor group and check if this works.

Thanks for the reply.  I figured out the issue which was a deny permission that was set for the everyone group on all my DCs listed.  Once I removed the everyone group from each DC I was able to move my DC to the new site.
